The younger kids love making gingerbread houses each year. The tradition started when a friend brought over graham cracker houses to make with our kids a few years ago. Now the kids insist on it every year. But my trick is that I always buy a pre-made kit to keep things simple.
Gabe has been begging to make their house for a week.
The younger kids all worked together on this one and the older kids are now putting the finishing touches on the second one.
